A heterocyclic system (6) containing a β-carboline moiety is descibed. o-Nitrophenylpyruvic acid and tryptamine hydrochloride were condensed to give 1-(2’-nitrobenzyl)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-β-carboline (3). 3, on dehydrogenation, gave 1-(2’-nitrobenzyl)-β-carboline(4) which was treated with methanolic KOH to furnish 1-(3’-2’-1’-benzisoxazole)-β-carboline (5) ehich on thermolysis or photolysis afforded the indolocinnoline derivative (6).
